Black Eyed Peas At The Superbowl: Warning Obama

The super bowl has become a national holiday in America. It is a time for football fans to unite together to drink beer and eat endlessly. It is a time when men feel comfortable to loosen up their belts and enjoy a NFL championship game on T.V with all their friends. Even if you are not a football fan, you can look forward to the commercials. After all, each commercial aired during the super bowl can cost around 2.6 million dollars.

The feelings of excitement and tension is in the air. Men are expected to claim their manhood on this “Super Day”. Bets are won and lost on this day and unfortunately, one team has to go home facing defeat. With this in mind, who would have expected a hip-hop band to nonchalantly spread a message to Barack Obama to educate our children? Huh?

That is exactly what happened last night during the 2011 Super Bowl XLV halftime show.  It is said that if you perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, you have reached super stardom. As every halftime show has proven, the super stars are dedicated to producing a “shock and awe” performance. Just ask Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson in the famous “wardrobe malfunction” performance. This begs us to ask- Is the Super Bowl halftime show the right forum to ask our President to help children across America?

Will. i.am

As Will. i. am and the Black Eyed Peas performed their hit song “Where is the love”, they changed the lyrics to say “In America we need to get things straight. Obama, let’s get these kids educated. Create jobs so the country stays stimulated.” If they really wanted to spread the message of our current education system, why not perform their song “Let’s get it started” and change it to “Let’s get kids educated”?

While I applaud the Black Eyed Peas for showing that they care about children, I do not think that the Super Bowl halftime show is the right forum to spread the message about the education system is America. Will Obama even listen to this message and fix the problem? It was a good idea to spread a meaningful message about our current education system, but I do not think we will see any reaction from Obama or the government. Let’s just agree that we shouldn’t start a party just yet!

Oh by the way, the Green Packers defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25.

Black Eyed Peas-Where is the Love lyrics:

What’s wrong with the world mama?
People living like aint got no mamas
I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that bring you trauma
Overseas yeah we tryin to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin
In the USA the big CIA the Bloodz and the Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And if you hatin you’re bound to get irate
Yeah madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
You gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love y’all

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father Father Father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(where is the lovex3)(the love2x)

It just ain’t the same all ways have changed
New days are strange is the world the insane?
If love and peace so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don’t belong
Nations dropping bombs
Chemical gases filling lungs of little ones
With ongoing suffering
As the youth die young
So ask yourself is the loving really strong?
So I can ask myself really what is going wrong
With this world that we living in
People keep on giving in
Makin wrong decisions
Only visions of them livin and
Not respecting each other
Deny thy brother
The wars’ going on but the reasons’ undercover
The truth is kept secret
Swept under the rug
If you never know truth
Then you never know love
Where’s the love y’all?(I don’t know)
Where’s the truth y’all?(I don’t know)
Where’s the love y’all?

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father father father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(where is the lovex3)(the lovex2)

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I’m getting older y’all people get colder
Most of us only care about money makin
Selfishness got us followin the wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting their young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what the see in the cinema
Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love, we’re spreading anomosity
Lack of understanding, leading us away from unity
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling under
That’s the reason why sometimes I’m feeling down
It’s no wonder why sometimes I’m feeling under
I gotta keep my faith alive, until love is found

People killing people dying
Children hurtin you hear them crying
Can you practice what you preach
Would you turn the other cheek?
Father Father Father help us
Send some guidance from above
Cause people got me got me questioning
Where is the love?(fade)
